Thank you to the Pirate’s Voyage Dinner & Show for hosting our family. All text and opinions are my own.
When we planned our winter beach trip to Myrtle Beach, I wanted to make sure that we had one activity per day. We didn’t get to make it to the Pirate’s Voyage Dinner and Show during our Pigeon Forge trip a few months ago, and I was excited to see that Myrtle Beach has the same attraction. At least half of a dozen friends recommended the Pirate’s Voyage show to us, and I had my fingers crossed that the dinner show would still be showing for the season. Luckily, it was, and I wanted to surprise the kids with it as one of our daily activities.
We caught one of the last showings before Pirate’s Voyage took a break for the season. We enjoyed the Christmas show, a fabulous mixture of A Christmas Carol and the nativity. Front row seats gave us a close-up view of the performers and animals.
I posted about our AWESOME experience on Instagram, and I received a few questions. Here’s a quick Q & A with a few of the questions I answered via DM or Instastory:
- Where is Pirate’s Voyage located? There are currently two locations- One in Myrtle Beach, SC, and one in Pigeon Forge, TN
- Is the dinner and show only for kids? No, way! There was a diverse group of attendees. I saw families with kids (like us!), couples, families with older (high school or college aged) kids, and multiple generational families. The show had something for everyone.
- Is the show scary for kids? My kids did not find the show scary (the triplets are 6). The show was overall entertaining with humor thrown in. There was a short portion with fire effects on the water and a few cannon sounds at the end. If your kids are sensitive to these elements, I recommend reserving a seat closer to the back.
For a family of 6, Pirate’s Voyage served as an awesome eating + entertaining activity for us. The food was tasty with a variety that pleased everyone. Here are a few tips if visiting Pirate’s Voyage Dinner & Show with a big family or a group:
- Arrive when the doors open. The pre-show is fun and offers photo ops with some of the pirates. This also makes sure that your group has seats all together.
- Pre-show snacks and beverages are not included with the ticket price. However, we found them to be reasonably priced. One bucket of popcorn was large enough for our family to share, and the beverages were large enough for two to share.
- The servers do provide take-out bags after the meal, so save any left-overs or any items that the kiddos may not have eaten for the take-out bag.
If you are in the Pigeon Forge, TN or Myrtle Beach, SC, area this year, make plans to attend a Pirate’s Voyage Dinner & Show. It will be one of the highlights of your trip!
